The Parent Leadership Program works in collaboration with Orange
County Social Services Agency, Children and Family Services to provide one-on-one mentorship
and support to parents receiving Family Reunification services.
When a parent begins their journey through the Dependency court system, many experience
isolation and loneliness because of unfamiliar terms and expectations. Meeting a Parent Mentor
who has successfully survived the emotional challenges of reunifying with their children, can be a
source of hope and inspiration for a parent entering the reunification process.
With the guidance and support of a Parent Mentor, parents will understand how the system
operates and the best way to utilize what it has to offer. Also, parents who are better informed
and supported have a greater likelihood of experiencing a more positive outcome and a brighter future ahead.
